victoria's secret

i wonder what victoria's secret is
because it's been quite a few years now
and yet is hard for me to forget about her
she appears in my dreams, in my msn contact list
i wonder if she remembers everything just as vividly

once she e-mailed me something
about couples growing apart
then getting back together
a short paragraph from some psychology scholar
that pictured us pretty well

while i still wonder i came up
with a theory of my own
me not being a scholar of any kind, just a layman
i miss her just as i miss my youth
and i can't go on with this quiet mess inside my head
